Our nine gardens are located in Holladay, South Jordan and West Jordan. Work in one location or all of them. It's up to you.

Elderly members, for example, have been some of our best workers! They move the work along as they sit on a chair and work in our gardens!
Being in a garden is very therapeutic and working in one is even better!
